Round in Circles is a group exhibition that explores formal and metaphorical implications of the circular. Probing the banal to the absurd to the disheartened, each work included in the exhibition employs some form or manifestation of a circle, loop, spiral, cycle, spin, circuit or hole. The exhibition reflects on a broader, collective feeling of the times, that of moving without getting anywhere, ending at the beginning, of literally going round and round in circles.

On the one hand, the circular can be read as a transcription of our current malaise that seemingly permeates each earthly rotation or more presciently every news cycle; of frustration and unease, of escape into fabricated nostalgias and worn repetitions, where the new is just yesterday’s old.  On the other, the form provides the potential for respite, a do over if you will; as we return to where we began, we are afforded another opportunity, a chance for a new beginning. Perhaps this time we will get it right.  And yet within the circular is the promise of stasis, that balance state where entropy becomes tamed into pattern and harmony, where new days are around every horizon, where the cycle of motion intermingle with time and space and the ouroboros makes peace within itself.  Yes, going round in circles is dizzying, at once nauseating and exciting, impoverished and plentiful, the form that implies nothing also embraces the possibilities of being everything.
